Robbers invade hospital, rape patients

…As church robber is set ablaze

Pandemonium rocked the General Hospital, Agbarho in Ughelli North Local Government Area of Delta State at the weekend when armed robbers unleashed hell on patients and workers.
It was gathered that the robbers, for the umpteenth time, in the hospital raped patients and female workers before carting away their belongings including cash, GSM handsets and other valuables.
Investigation revealed that the robbers, who were many,  shot into the air on arrival and ordered the people around, including medical personnel to lie face down before executing their mission. Checks by Daily Sun revealed that this was the third time men of the underworld would terrorise the hospital and they  succeeded on each occasion.
Consequently, the people of the area are now scared-stiff to patronise the hospital as their safety was no longer guaranteed. A middle-aged woman, who visited her hospitalised relations, said she could not stay up to five minutes for fear of being attacked by robbers.
Meanwhile, relations of other patients at the hospital are already withdrawing their wards and relocating them to other hospitals and herbal homes. Most of those who spoke with Daily Sun urged the state government to provide security in the hospital to curb the excesses of bandits, who had made life unbearable for patients and workers.

In another development, a suspected armed robber was set ablaze by a mob for robbing members of a church at gun point in Warri, Delta State. The suspect and two others had stormed the church located in the busy Kolokolo area of Warri and dispossessed worshippers of their valuables.
Sources told Daily Sun that the bandits  shot severally into the air, ordering everybody to lie face down and dispossessed them of their money, GSM handsets as well as the offering.
Nemesis, however, caught up with the hoodlums when some of the worshippers, who managed to escape, raised the alarm, which attracted passers-by. Sensing that their game was up, two of the robbers narrowly escaped but the third was apprehended and given the beating of his life and set ablaze.
